AutomotiveUI ´13: The 5th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications

October 27-30, 2013, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

For further Information visit: http://www.auto-ui.org

Conference Goals
AutomotiveUI, the International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. AutomotiveUI brings together researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. AutomotiveUI '13 will address novel in-vehicle services, models of and concepts for enhancing the driver experience, topics (models and UI concepts) related to driver performance and distraction, effects of developments such as (semi-)autonomous driving, and the varying needs of different user groups.
In-car interactive technology is becoming ubiquitous and cars are increasingly connected to the outside world. Drivers and passengers use this technology because it provides valuable services. Some technology, such as collision warning systems, assists drivers in performing their primary in-vehicle task (driving). Other technology provides information on myriad subjects or offers entertainment to the driver and passengers.
The design of in-car devices has historically been the responsibility of car manufacturers and their parts suppliers. However, the responsibility is now shifting toward larger and more fluctuating groups including car OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers of factory-installed electronics, and the manufacturers of hardware and software brought into the vehicle (e.g, personal navigation devices, smartphones, and tablets).
The challenge that arises from the proliferation of in-car devices is that they may distract drivers from the primary task of driving, with possibly disastrous results. Thus, one of the major goals of this conference is to explore ways in which in-car user interfaces can be designed so as to lessen driver distraction while still enabling valuable services.
Concerning driving safety, our focus in designing in-car user interfaces should not be purely on eliminating distractions. In-car user interfaces also offer the opportunity to improve the driver's performance (e.g., increasing awareness of upcoming hazards).
In-car interfaces can also enhance the experience of all occupants in the car. To this end, a further goal of AutomotiveUI '13 is the exploration of in-car interfaces that address the varying needs of different users (including disabled drivers, elderly drivers, passengers, and the users of rear-seat entertainment systems). The conference goal is to showcase ways to advance the state of the art in vehicular user experiences, for enhanced safety, comfort, and enjoyment.
Topics
AutomotiveUI'13 invites you to submit original work in one or more of the following formats: full and short papers, workshops, posters, interactive demonstrations, tutorials and industrial show-cases. Topics include, but are not limited to:

2) Workshops and Tutorials
Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss themes of common interest in a less formal setting. We are open to all topic areas, but do encourage workshop proposals covering emerging and future trends in the field. The proposed workshop should consider topics that can move the field forward and suggest promising new research directions. The criteria, reviewing and acceptance will be handled by the workshop organizers.

Tutorials provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the state of the art both about theory, methods and concepts relating to the areas addressed by the Automotive UI conference. We invite proposals for tutorials from researchers and experienced practitioners.

Workshop and Tutorial proposals should be submitted as 4 page (maximum) write-ups. We accept proposals for full day (~6 hours) or half day (3-4 hours, morning or afternoon) workshops and tutorials. Please format your proposal according to the ACM SIGCHI format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). Accepted workshops and tutorials are publicized as part of the conference. Participation in workshops and tutorials is only open to people who register for the main conference (participation itself is free of charge).

Workshop proposals must contain the following:
§  general goal of the workshop
§  name, email address, and affiliation of the presenter(s). Note that each listed presenter should be registered and present at the workshop
§  topics of interest
§  proposal for the schedule of the workshop including the preferred type and number of participants you will expect to take part
§  ideas for publicizing the workshop
§  procedures for handling the reviews
§  thoughts about how the outcome of the workshop can be can be captured and retained in a meaningful way
